Food For Being Looked At – An Exhibition

King's Cross Blog

We’re no strangers to taking photos of our food here at Karpo Grill, or indeed cocktails at the Megaro Bar for that matter. And we see lots of you doing the same. Social media, especially Instagram, is full of food, bursting at the seams in fact.

It’s a little strange, but then again it’s great to see what new places are serving up, and what old favourites have cooked up to keep us coming back. Like our steaks: people just keep coming back for them, over and over. You can never have too many pictures of your steak it seems.

During your stay with us in King’s Cross at the Megaro Hotel or The California, we’ve a recommendation:  ‘Food For Being Looked At’, a new small exhibition a The Photographers’ Gallery just off Oxford Street. The exhibition examines the phenomenon and you can read more here, including some handy food photo tips. The exhibition runs until October 8th, alongside a permanent collection as well as other temporary exhibits.

We’d also invite you to take pictures of our food while your dining with us, naturally!
